Arpin Summer Learning Program Focuses on Energy Education
City Times Staff
ARPIN — This summer, energy and education literally go hand in hand.
Arpin is hosting multiple events over the next couple of weeks that focus on energy education, and some featured energetic activities included closing a circuit by holding hands, turning on light bulbs by cranking a machine, and making strawberry shakes by pedaling a bike.
These activities provided Arpin’s summer learning program participants with real examples of energy. Pedal Power is part of the University of Stevens Point’s K-12 energy programs.
Below is a schedule of events over the next couple of weeks:
